How to Replant Jade Plant – 4 Easy Steps |

Q: I have a jade plant in my conservatory. He is 2 years old now and has filled his bowl. Is it a good idea to repost it, and if so, can you give me any tips?

A: Most healthy houseplants will need to be repotted every now and then to accommodate their growth and prevent root congestion, which can affect nutrient uptake. Among these are jade trees or plants, also known as Crassula ovata, which are usually replanted every two or three years – or every four years if they are more mature. It is best to do this in the spring, when the plant is actively growing, advises gardening expert Tony O’Neill.

Often, repotting (removing any rotten roots) is also worth doing if your jade plant is dropping its leaves due to over-watering.
